The Giveaway on Goodreads is live and ticking. At the moment I’m writing this, there are more than 300 participants and many of them have added little Konrad to their TBR book piles. If they look anything like my skyscraper, it will be a while before they get to him! But still, I’m blown away by the number of people who have shown an interest. It is truly humbling when there are so many great books out there! (And so little time to read!!!)
If you would like to enter the Giveaway, there is a widget in the margin to the right —-> if you are on the computer or if you are on a mobile device just click here for more details. The Giveaway is open to all readers in all the lands of the world, so just sign up! (Sunday at the latest!)
I’ve started writing book 2 in the Artworld series and so far, so good. I’m only a couple of chapters in, but it flows and I know where I want the story to go. The working title is Konrad and the Garden Painting, but I don’t think it will stick. I promised someone that I would have it done by September, so I guess I’ll have to be quick about it! I’ve got another week or so left on my day job before I can take some time off, and I hope to spend quite a lot of that free time writing.
It’s fun to be back in Konrad’s world again but I’m noticing already that I’m going to have to battle my fears of writing a disappointing sequel with this one. It needs to be better than book 1 in order to live up to the readers’ expectations, I think. Better raise the bar quite a bit then. Perhaps I’ll be able to walk straight under it, if all else fails …
I’ve forbidden myself to work on the SF project known as Outside, since I don’t have a deadline for that, but I couldn’t help browsing for images for the cover last night when I was too tired to do anything sensible. And I think I might have found my Lee!
